Support a Scholar


The Support a Scholar fund is dedicated to providing financial support for contingent faculty and graduate students who attend the ACLA Annual Meeting. The fund is critical in light of increased cutbacks in university budgets (particularly in the humanities) and the effects of the economic downturn during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We welcome donations to the Support a Scholar fund as we move towards our next Annual Meeting. Contributions from friends of the ACLA are crucial to supporting our members for whom the cost of this travel would otherwise be prohibitive. The entirety of your donation will go to support the scholars in need, and any amount will be appreciated.

If you or someone you know would benefit from an ACLA grant, we invite you to apply for Support a Scholar funds. Please return to the site in Winter 2022 for application information for the 2023 travel grants.
